Want your school or community to kick the bottled water habit?

Watch this webinar to learn how!

Americans buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week, despite the fact that it flows virtually free from the tap. That’s enough plastic bottles to circle the globe more than five times! All across the country, a movement is growing to stop the use and sale of bottled water.

In April 2014, New Dream and Corporate Accountability International presented a webinar about how to organize a campaign to eliminate bottled water in your community. The webinar covers topics such as how to get started, how to build public support, and how to maximize media coverage — with a special look at successful campaigns from university campuses.

Whether you want to kick the bottled water habit in your school, workplace, or entire city, you won't want to miss this.

Guest speakers:

  • Lauren DeRusha — National Campaign Organizer, Corporate Accountability International
  • Kelsey Baker — Regional Student Organizer, Santa Clara University
